Control Layout and Engineering Surveys

These surveys are carried out to place or fix a scale for photogrammetric mapping, well-site drilling, hydrographics, mining shaft directions, routing of highways or transmission lines, and construction layout of municipal or private works following an engineering or architectural design. Survey work in this category involves a range from large scale geographic and governmental mapping projects (mainly in conjunction with specialized aerial mapping firms) to the layout of foundations or basement forms within a lot for a building contractor or owner.
